Default Where can I buy a cruise dress?

Does anybody know where I can buy cruise dresses for the formal nights that are a reasonable price. One snag. I live in England.

Try www.travelsmith.com, my wife bought "a little black dress" for around $75 US. I'm sure shipping to the UK is not a problem. By the way, it looks great on her.

First set the type of dress /attire you wish or have to wear (gown? cocktail dress,? matching accessories ?) How many nights? When do you go for this cruise!?
You can wait a few weeks for low prices at the beginning of summer, but its more diff to find evening attire now than in winter time; wedding formals can help you. Where do you live in UK?

I live in nottingham and i am finding it really difficult to find formal dresses also. Monsoon always have been good in the past but this year they seem not to have any dresses in this could be because of the end of the spring season. Im 18 so i can still go to shops such as topshop but they tend not to be posh enough. Any other good ideas as to posh shops ? Im on the millenium on july 22nd so i have up to then to shop for some new formal dresses! Once i have got my exams for my alevels out of the way it is shop shop shop !

Thanks Becky

perhaps a bridal boutique?? Have you considered shopping on line with some US department stores? Nordstroms, Dillard's, and Speigel come to mind.

Default I've got a great site for you!

I recently bought my formal night dress through this company in California on-line. Hundreds of dresses to choose from. Mine cost under $50....plus $12 to ship. Hope this helps!

If buying from US stores watch your size, US and UK are different sizes!

Try T.K.Maxx,they have lovely designer gowns all year round and they are really cheap,infact they are probably the best store for everything you want for cruising-happy shopping and cruising.

Try wedding dress stores. They usually have a nice selection of discounted party/formal type dresses. Good luck!
